Games: ScummVM for Series 60 Phones

September 19, 2006 in Mobile Phone Software

Unless you lived under a rock during the roaring ’90s, you probably heard of a series of games called Monkey Island. Or maybe Maniac Mansion. Or Sam & Max Hit the Road. These were some of Lucasarts’ most popular games back in the day, games that are considered classics.

Simon the Sorcerer.

ScummVM in action: your friendly, portable LucasArts game emulator.

So what’s this ScummVM thing, anyway?

ScummVM is basically a very large-scale emulator that plays all of the LucasArts adventure-ish type of games and a couple others just for fun. It’s an open-source project that’s been released on almost every major console and portable console. Which just incidentally happens to include mobile phones.

The good news about this emulator is that, unlike this freakin’ game called Lumines, it’s actually quite playable being that the games are more thinking that straight action.

So if you’ve ever wanted to play the Legend of Kyrandia series, or the Simon the Sorcerer series (both of them really well done) grab ScummVM. Besides the emulator, you’ll also need the binary files for each game. Since I can’t post these files, you’ll have to go looking for them elsewhere. I highly recommend Sam & Max Hit the Road. It’s hilarious.

And since my S60 screenshot program isn’t quite working right now, you’ll have to make do with these:

Make sure you get the right version for your Nokia phone – you’ll need the Series 60 version 3 for newer Nseries phones (N71, N80, N91).
